8:02 pm
person could get a driver's license to 25. now that got their attention. usually they would start booing and yelling. i said oh but there's another. we have also decided we are going to raise the age person can date because sexually transmitted diseases are a serious problem among younger people. from this point forward we are going to pass a law that you can't date without a parent on the date until you were 30. they were screaming and going nuts. then i said all right. we are also going to do one other thing we are going to make it that you kafrnt buy alcohol until you are 28. under aged drinking is a real problem. everybody in the high school assembly was yelling and screaming. then i would say to them, wait a minute you told me you didn't care about politics and government. the fact is if you don't care and if you don't vote we can do anything do you that we want to. you are always going to hear this stuff about we are working
8:03 pm
for the people. politicians don't work for the people. are you kidding yourselves? if you think that you are naive. pol tiggs work not for the people they work for the voters. the voters are the ones who hired them. the voters are the only people who can fire them. according to fox news exit polls only 13 percent of americans between the ages of 18 to 29 even voted in the mid term election. now that is an alarmingly low number for a generation that will be pass the with taking over the country. they want their voices to be heard but how can they be heard when they oh don't show up to the polls. why aren't they voting? what will drive them to vote in the future? through out tonight's show we will be joined by a panel of millennials and an audience of young people to focus on what issues matter to america's next generation. let me now introduce our panel for the evening. first up is co founder executive
8:04 pm
director of the accountability project. first up is aimiki combs she tried to be the youngest editor in chief of campus reform.org since graduating college 'n since 2011 chelsae hen henry attorney entrepreneur and motivational speaker. named a rising star to the republican national committee. and johnny jones lost both of his legs when he stepped on an ied. he graduated from georgetown university and executive director of marketing of the boot campaign. thanks for joining us. >> yes. >> let's talk about why is it
8:05 pm
that so chelsea let me start with you what. is going on with voters? >> 13%, we saw a 6% decrease in 2012. i think about what is important to us? the people that ran for office, are they schaeffering a message how we're going to be able to pay our student debt? how we're going to be able to start a family? a business? in government not being everything we do. we have to get back to basics and look at what is important. we have to reach out and be effective with what we say and how we message. >> what do you suggest politicians taught to be talking about and framing the message. if they're going to attract the vote? . >> i don't know if it's anything in particular or the way they frame the message. it comes down to one thing.
8:06 pm
honesty. our generation is tire offed being lied to. and that they're looking for leadership. someone looking them in the eye and say look. we have tough decisions to make. and there is going to be tough calls and i think our generation is looking for someone owe do that. >> it's not like you just read and i'm anxious to find out do you think there is perspective you that have is straight from your piers. >> well, you know, i'm telling people, you know overcoming adversity builds character and
8:07 pm
success. . you have to lose to win. with our generation there is a bad term called establishment. when your fiscal policies have to match. when how you feel has to match how you feel about the economy. so, i'm knowingly optimistic but it's true. it's very discouraging at the end of the day we know that this area is decidedly red. this is blue. >> you may have a different perspective. do you think young people don't care? >> i think he has it right there. young people are the most-educated population ever the largest generation in history the most diverse generation in
8:08 pm
history. it's not that they don't care. they're giving back to the communities more than any other generation in the past. but 50% find themselves as inds. and overwhelming hi they want the government to answer to them. and to fix the housing crisis. that is why i think they're answering to things like initiatives and turning out for gay marriage but not turning out for politicians. >> when i talked earlier in the opening i talked about how a lot of students care what politicians can do for them. if you're go going to give advice, if you had advice and
8:09 pm
can say you want to communicate here is what you need to tell them. >> limited government. right and left when i'm traveling leadership campus we're hearing from students they want less government intrusion. irs targeting of political groups is home on both sides of the aisle. this issue students are really concerned about. and it's the way the government can handle that issue it's not been adequate. students are upset with intrusion. >> that there won't be to give them guaranteed loans? >> that is a separate question the government takeover is a big issue between increase in cost of tuition nationwide but i think it goes back to the government getting out of our lives limited government.
8:10 pm
i think our generation wants limited government. >> we're almost out of time for this segment. anyone else want to weigh in on that? >> the issue is clear across the board. but what i'm more concerned about is why are parties keeping millennials. they put money into mailers they move every two years, investing into canvassing. and that money is on tv ads. so on television you can do dvr in a commercial. >> right. >> they don't make money. it's about making money for the people who work for the

>> this is what you do? right here? hamas is not cute. that flag you wave is psychological genocide of the planet. >> okay. this is berkeley. we've got to give him that. that was a shocker to me to see students on a taxpayer funded campus that thought that israel was a bad player, and isis was okay. i mean i'm just stunned. let me start with you on this one. how shocked are you when you see videos like that? do you think the country lost its mind? >> no. i think well, there are two issues here i don't think people recognize what that flag is. and and everything says that all
8:17 pm
millennials that are polled care about the issues. one of the great things about being on a college campus is the right to free speech. whether you're on the right side or left side of it, if you talk to millennials, it doesn't matter where you go you're going to get a diverse opinion. if you go one campus? >> you've talked to students. is this a trend you can see? that people are blaming america for the problems of the world sth >> i do see students go to extreme lengths and you get on a good point there. is that students don't know the isis flag and do know the israel flag. that is the problem. is that portrayed on america's campuses as a symbol of people and oppression. when it is the opposite. and the isis flag is nowhere to be found whchlt students at george mason university are
8:18 pm
asked do you want to support isis, they sign it when i go to harvard -- >> they haven't been around since 1947. >> it's dominating the news. they're beheading westerners and it's seen on college campuses that activist students are trying to defund israel trying to -- >> they're small groups there are pro-israeli groups as well. >> students of those groups are getting beaten up because of their association. we report it on all the time. >> when you talk to people that are blood brothers of isis out there, they're responsible for you not having legs today how do you respond? >> first let me tell you our innocent of the country in leading a global economy and going some to be dangerous to radical tyranny is responsible for me lose mying legs. so taliban had nothing to do
8:19 pm
with me losing my legs because i chose to be there. our country chose to be there. as far as students on campus if you can assimilate walmart not paying you $20 a hour wage with syria being our fault i can't fathom, however if you want to know what we do in other countries, the knowledgeable people, i graduated from georgetown even with this accent, we're great not because of the wealth we have or but because every day we go what can we do to make this country and world a little bit better place. >> i want to you response that college campuses lean left do you feel sometimes like
8:20 pm
you're in a college campus you're a fish out of water because you're a conservative? >> absolutely. so, i can tell you when i was in law school, i was known as the black republican. that is what some people would call me. and thankfully i am a rirn because of values and platform alone with my values it gave me an idea why i believe what i believe. the fact i happen to be black does not have anything to do i align with the republican party but i was able to take them back through hist troy allow them to see why sit important not only for african americans but all people to have the option to choose where you sign your voter registration form. with that in law school and at church, i tell can change people to the republican party. they understand their values
8:21 pm
align with the party. >> i don't have any doubts you've changed people. you're a very persuasive person. if i wasn't conservative before, i would be. >> in 1973 the u.s. converted to an all volunteer military. >> it is time maybe to consider reinstating the draft or some type of national service do you think that would get younger americans motivated to vote? we're going to ask the studio audience to stay with us on this special edition of "huckabee".
8:22 pm
(kids laughing) you know i tried one of those bargain paper towels but i had to use so many sheets per spill the roll just disappeared. i knew i should've bought bounty bounty is 2x more absorbent and strong when wet. just look how much longer bounty lasts versus one of those bargain brand towels. and that's a good deal. bounty. the long lasting picker upper and now try new bounty nfl prints. available at walmart.

8:25 pm
>> what we do see is that 56% are going into services, public sector, teach for america, ameri corps peace corps. you name it we see high numbers of young americans going into nonprofit jobs and considering jobs for the military because they bring personnel into areas and give education i don't think that mandatory draft is necessary because they're already going out in
8:26 pm
high droves we believe we're personal activists. we want to see government sponsoring these sort of services and jobs because we believe again in an activist government. >> that is different from what caleb says. >> anyone else on the way do you want a limited government? >> i think the problem we have today in american society is that we have a welfare state has grown under barack obama we have a corporate welfare state at the same time. those of us going into the work force over the next couple years because of the policies being emphasized elsewhere we're not going to have job creation because of our tax code because of obamacare and the regulatory department i think young people are in need of and supportive of free enterprise and limited government i don't agree you support an activist government.
8:27 pm
i think we've seen that and it hasn't worked out so well. >> and if government does something, government has to pay for it the only way to pay for it is take it from you. >> molly how much are you willing to pay the government to do things for you? that is the big question. it's got to get the money from you. it doesn't do bake sales. >> right. it should be personal responsibility. should take power away from the government and put it into personal enterprise and small businesses and i think if you limit the government then people will be motivated to step up and make adjustments themselves. with the draft, i think someone, any time you retire someone to do do something, and the government requires it it causes people to be concerned. so it might have a beneficial response in that regard i don't think it should be be a requirement. i do think it would help people look at issues that can are
8:28 pm
these issues i'm willing to fight or and to put my eggs in one basket for. that would inspire them to get out and vote. >> johnny you're in a military all volunteer. nobody was there except they chose to be. good idea? bad idea? do you want to fight along someone that has to be there because a number came up? >> it is solved -- as a member of the department of defense and running a military nonprofit i can tell you we in the private sector do a lot better job spending a dollar. that is my experience. and that when it comes to this issue, i mean in this war, how many of you went out and bought a war bond? hoch of it came out of your check book? how much did you feel from this? the answers are not a lot.
8:29 pm
maybe that is our goal i don't think the military needs a draft to be successful. >> let's than 1% of the american public will serve in the military, we're fighting wars with what my good friend says are other peoples' kids. do we understand fully what we're asking them to do? when he go? i wish we can keep just that topic. but public service, something to think about. you just graduated college, ready to move on. find a job, get a place to live, go out in the world but there is something dragging you down like cement shoes the question? will you ever be able to pay off those student loans? talking about our student loan problem in america with our panel and our audience when we come back.
8:30 pm
>> do you think you'll be able to take care of this debt when you graduate? >> i'm not sure. latte or au lait? cozy or cool? exactly the way you want it ... until boom, it's bedtime!

8:32 pm
suffering from the flu is a really big deal. with aches, fever and chills- there's no such thing as a little flu. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. attack the flu virus at its source with prescription tamiflu. and call your doctor right away. tamiflu is fda approved to treat the flu in people 2 weeks and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions,
8:33 pm
or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. ask your doctor about tamiflu and attack the flu virus at its source. >> i am kelly wright. it doesn't look good for the 162 passengers and crew of the missing air asia plane. the search and rescue chief says based on the coordinates when it was last heard from it is likely flielt 8501 crashed and is at the bottom of the sea. it was traveling to singapore with it went missing.

8:36 pm
and another recent study, 24% of millennials believe their student debt is going to be forgiven, wiped off. saying don't worry about it. >> ye terrible idea. you're going to have a percentage of knuckle heads in society. 24% is a high percent of knuckleheads. >> yes. >> well >> do you think they should be? >> yes. you know? we gave increases to ceos the least we can do is help a generation that has been overcharged for education my parents went to college it was $600 a semester, $60,000 a year.
8:37 pm
>> you know i agree it's a racket. and colleges are overpriced but community colleges aren't that expensive. instead of buying a mercedes-benz you might buy a fiat? >> those who are going to higher under graduate unfortunately private institutions are getting jobs. those who are spending more when you see online degrees you're spending money and people aren't graduating and not getting jobs >> wall street bailout has not expected their ways in the way student hoon bailouts don't teach students fiscal responsibility. these are dults that need to realize they're liable to repay that debt. and they need to choose degree that's make them employable.
8:38 pm
>> right now it doesn't matter what your degree is you're not getting a job. >> how many are trying to get a skilled blue collar labor? trying to find something they can provide a service to provide, they can make money at. $50,000 or $60,000 a year. if you want a federal government do something have them put information they have about hundreds of thousands of skilled labor jobs out there waiting for someone to fill them. and listen hey i've got a skill set of bond setter and i went and found a job available i can fill. it's skilled labor. >> if a student decides to go to the most expensive school in america is it my responsibility to make that choice to have to pay someone else's decision? i'd say go to the school you can
8:39 pm
afford to pay for. >> so at the of the of the day, i believe what you said they choose the school they want to go to. it was my decision so i'm not looking for a government handout. i am looking at ways to patent ideas, smart small businesses invent so i take on the responsibility to pay off my loan. there are programs i support. there are opportunities, if you serve ten years they'll pay off your debt. i support those programs i believe if you're giving back to the country not just standing there with your hand stuck out to pay for you there is a benefit tease young people are going in and making very little in terms of sally ri but giving back
8:40 pm
i support those programs but to say 24% just want their debt paid off? we have educating to do. >> i twoent a small private christian college in arkansas. i'm telling you something. i debated in the course of my political life people who have harvard law degrees i never felt disadvantaged or disapointsed or sorry i went to the school i went to. i felt like i got a great education. go where you can afford and feel like you're going to be prepared for life. not where someone is going to give you recognition because there is a reputation there. you'll build your own. many political candidates will focus often on issues like legalizing marijuana. is it a top priority foremost
